as obama's have this year. history also suggest that there are two types of white house shakeups. he fires somebody anybody as a is a cry official lamb. the second is deep cleansing. jim, the question everybody asks does he have this in him? >> it's nuts. he's not going to fire his staff. he's not going to make that kind of change. at the end of the day the white house reflects the president. are your going to bring in different staff and have new blood in his veins. that's not how presidents work. he never wanted to have people around him who he doesn't consider close in many cases intimate friends. that's where his comfort zone is. he won't bring in republicans and bring in old hands from the democratic party. it sounds good but it's not sensical. he won't do it. >> why? >> one he only has a couple of years left in the white house. he likes those around him. the chief of staff is relatively new. it's a different team. you don't have rahm emanuel or david plouff or david, ale rod or robert gibbs. you have a lot on this show talk about what's going on but not advising him. there is new blo

the 29,000 that had to sign up for obama care because they got an obama care exemption. what they did, greg, basically he said that his leadership staff -- >> right. >> -- is not going to have to go on the exchanges. the ruling earlier this year gave him the option of doing so, but interestingly, none of the other leadership offices of john boehner, nancy pelosi or mitch mcconnell have done the same. >> right. >> what do you think of that? >> reid is a genius. he's like walter white in "breaking bad." he is like a meth dealer who never tries the drug. the difference here is that meth is safer than obama care. but he's just -- he's the guy who pushes it, but he never tries it. that's brains. >> you know, i like your analogies. i really do. >> why, thank you. >> let's get eric in here to tell us about the latest obama care -- yeah. because somebody just tweeted me and said that they were looking forward to what delusional things bob would say today. let's start with you before we go to dilutielusions. >> let's do the facts for our factually challenged liberals wednesday edition. 29,000

illinois. barack obama met nelson mandela when he was just a junior senator here in 2005. and years later his wife had the chance to tell mandela what he meant to her and the president. >> you cannot imagine how important your legacy is to who i am, to who my husband is. i just said, thank you, thank you, thank you. >> reporter: so back during his first visit there was little wonder why, watching a 71-year-old man dance could please so many. it was the walk that preceded it. when i met mr. mandela there was time for one question. mr. mandela, i asked, what is the one thing in life you know for sure? with that elegant smile he answered, good and evil are constantly at war. good men must choose. with defiance and dignity in equal measure. nelson mandela chose and america loved him for it. >> this was at 4:00 in the morning. >> that's right. >> thanks very much. appreciate it. we'll be right back. through all of our energy operations, we invest more in the u.s. than any other place in the world. in fact, we've invested over $55 billion here in the last five years - making bp america's larges

, whether you like the bill or not, for the next three years it is going to be law. until president obama is no longer in the white house, then we have a discussion about repeal. then republicans need to stop saying we need to get it off the books. >> sam, what are they accusing him of? it's like if a baseball batter gets a strike called on him, you don't accuse him of not trying to hit the ball. if you try to hit the ball and fail, that's what obama did here. it was a poor rollout. >> yeah. >> are they accusing him of wanting to have a poor rollout? it seems like they're saying he lied. he wanted this to be lousy. what are they actually accusing him of? >> that's the irony of the criticism. they say the website is so poor. it's not letting people buy coverage. it's not what you promised it to be. and we don't want people to buy coverage. it would be bad for femme. so there is a general inconsistency to the criticism here. but again, the president stressed it today. for the next three years, he will be in the oval office. the repeal movement is for that period of time dead. there is no re
